Nan's birthday card

So I've been a lazy cardmaker recently and just haven't made any.. been busy playing with various bits of jewellery for orders and for me... so it's about time I got back into dong challenges again... This card is for my Nan's birthday, ok so it's not till mid Dec but these pieces fell together so beautifully that I thought it would suit her. The card fits in with this weeks Dutch Dare challenge 'Use 3 flowers' and A Spoon Full Of Sugar 'blooming marvellous'.

I've used:

  • Electric purple cardstock
  • Anna Stemplewska designer paper (one of my buys whilst seeing linda at the craft shop at the weekend)
  • Tilda image from the Think Pink kit (thanks donna)
  • 3 lilac medium flowers (another weekend buy)
  • Happy birthday peel off
  • 3 recycled scrabble tiles (good ol' charity shop buy)
  • Marvy pens
  • Silver inkpad
  • Chunky glue dots
